Perhaps partially because of their name, which seemed especially ironical as the day was blistering hot, Ice from Edmonton won the A division of the NSA Slo-pitch tourney held last weekend.

The tournament held at Four Seasons Park Aug. 4, 5 and 6 attracted 30 teams from throughout Alberta.

Second in the A division was SF, followed by Pink Flamingos.

In the B division, Rage took first place, second was Outlaws and Hit N Run won third.

In the C Division, Airtech Legends were first, followed by Vodka, and third was the Other Team.

In the D division, first was won by Loaded Bases, second went to RESLIP and third was won by the Pharm Team.

Provincial director for Alberta, Ryan Dutka said the tournaments are a great drawing card for teams of all calibers.

“We have competitive to very recreational,” he said. “It’s a good family event and it’s great here in Sylvan where everyone can go to the lake afterwards.”
